Christopher Eccleston joked that he would only repeat his role in Doctor Who’s TV series “Hell Freezes”.
Christopher, who last played Time Lord 15 years ago, is currently recording an audio version of Who is the Doctor, titled Doctor: The Ninth Doctor’s Adventure
However, while appearing on Lorraine on Tuesday, the hosts could not help but question the 56-year-old if he could ever return to the series.
“I’m going to do the second day of recording an audio adventure for a company called Ninth Doctor’s Big Finish, and it’s written by a great writer, Nicholas Briggs – who is also the voice of Daleks,” he told the host.
About which Lorraine asked: ‘You can do anything with Doctor Joe. He is always reborn, he never came back.
‘I don’t want to say Patit because it’s bad but he never went back, but he can or he can?’
“You can come back, you can open up,” he added.
“Well, I’m doing it in audio right now,” Christopher replied.
‘I know what you’re getting, Lorraine, but … only when hell freezes.’
The script is for the first volume of Ninth Doctor Adventures, titled Ravengers.
After gaining so much fan following from her time on the show, many were delighted to see her back in character.
Christopher had previously said of his return as a doctor: ‘It will be very exciting to see the world of the Ninth Doctor again, reviving the character I love to play.’
Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor Adventures series will be released in four box sets that will be available for CD and vinyl as well as digital download.
Lorraine airs on ITV on weekdays at 9am.
